Quest 2 not turning on and not charging

Honored Guest


I've read through a lot of similar threads and troubleshoot guides, but do not seem to find the help I need. Sorry if I've missed something. 

I'm trying to get my son's Quest 2 working. It doesn't seem to charge and cannot turn on. 

Yes, I have tried different chargers and sockets. 

Yes, I have charged and waited several hours multiple times

Yes, I have held down the power button for a long time

When plugged in, the red light blinks with long periods in-between (approx. 10-12 sec)

Hope someone can help or direct me in the right direction
